RIYADH (AFP) - Heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr has said that all the pressure will be on dethroned champion Anthony Joshua in their contentious showdown in Saudi Arabia.
Ruiz, who was born in the United States but fights as a Mexican, caused one of boxing’s biggest upsets in New York in June when he handed Joshua a first defeat to win the WBA, IBF and WBO crowns in New York.
The pair will fight the rematch on Saturday in Diriyah, close to the Saudi capital Riyadh, in a hotly-anticipated contest dubbed "Clash on the Dunes”.
